Keith and Bet Starnes were really good to my wife and I when we were first married and Keith and I worked together. Ate many meals at their house. May God bless and comfort the Starnes family.

My heart goes out to you at this time and in the days ahead.

Skip, Lori, Jill, Leigh & Amy,
So sorry to hear of your mother's passing. The back street of the neighborhood just won't be the same. Remembering fondly growing up in Pinebrook Park. Keeping each of you and your families in our thoughts and prayers.

Although I never knew any of her family, I met Betty in the early 80's when she and Ann gave me some valuable pointers in starting my own tax business. I have been forever grateful for her help, and have valued our friendship. I am saddened by her passing. My condolences go out to her family.

Thanks to your Mom and Dad for being such good neighbors to my parents. I'm sorry for your lose, and hope the next few weeks go well for all of you.

Sorry to hear of the lost of Mrs. Starnes. Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you.

Lori, we are so sorry for your loss. Your mother sounds like such a wonderful woman of God! I pray that you will always have fond memories of her, and am thankful that you can have the Peace of God, knowing that she is eternally happy in her heavenly home. Love in Christ, Mark and Becky DiRienzo
